Background on me
I am a Sophomore in college(when I started this) studying a Bachelors of Arts in Peace Studies major and a double minor in Environmental Studies and Sociology. I believe that these three areas of study can all help with discussing environmental issues and should be looked at.
I grew up in the Bay Area and am now attending college in Southern California. Studying the environment has always interested me and my parents instilled the values of conservation, recycling, and respecting the environment.
In high school I was able to take AP Environmental Science with a wonderfully enthusiastic teacher,who inspired me to pursue studying the environment.
Purpose of my blog
My blog will be an educational opportunity as well as a discussion about environmental issues and relating them to the political, global, and social perspectives.
I encourage you to comment and add your knowledge and opinions and gladly appreciate it.
Food for thought
“Let every individual and institution now think and act as a responsible trustee of Earth, seeking choices in ecology, economics and ethics that will provide a sustainable future, eliminate pollution, poverty and violence, awaken the wonder of life and foster peaceful progress in the human adventure.”
